Series 1:  Correspondence 1950-2000

Physical Description: 18 folders (0.9 linear feet)

Scope and Content Note

The files in the Correspondence Series are grouped into general correspondence, e-mail correspondence, and subject correspondence files. The general correspondence comprises primarily letters to Carrier, with Carrier’s response occasionally attached. The folders are in ascending chronological order, with the materials in each in reverse chronological order, following Carrier’s original arrangement. Undated materials are placed at the end of the group. The series includes two folders of printouts of e-mail correspondence, one of general correspondence, the other of correspondence relating to Carrier’s trip to Thailand in 2001. The subject files comprise several files created by Carrier. The Clark L. Taylor file includes correspondence concerning the organization of a workshop on homosexual research, as well as several of Taylor's typescripts. José Moreno was one of several Carrier research subjects who continued to correspond with him, and the file includes correspondence and interview notes utilized by Carrier in his research. Carrier also created subject correspondence files on the UCLA Gender Clinic, an article on the Omani xanith, and a review essay on homosexuality by Robert Endelman. The Evelyn Hooker correspondence file was created in the course of processing the collection.
